The area of London known as Finsbury or Finsbury Park has become increasingly desirable as a place to both, live and stay. Known for its hip, urbanite feels and a mixture of Victorian-era terraced houses and newer developments, Finsbury is a part of London which offers a fantastic mix of the historic and the contemporary.

There are low-key festivals hosted here throughout the summer, and you can also head to the nearby Montcalm Club Lounge for drinks.
